Printed/flexible sensors offer multiple benefits relative to their more established rigid counterparts.
Printed/flexible sensors offer multiple benefits relative to their more established rigid counterparts, including lower weight, flexibility/conformality, and potentially lower manufacturing costs since printing facilitates high-throughput continuous production methods.
Furthermore, printed/flexible sensors can measure a wide range of parameters and can be employed in emerging applications, including industrial IoT, wearables, automotive interiors, and smart buildings.
In no particular order, here are IDTechEx’s top five innovative printed/flexible sensor technologies along with their associated applications:
Hybrid piezoresistive and capacitive sensors: You may be familiar with both capacitive touch sensors, found, for example, on top of smartphone and tablet displays, and piezoresistive sensors that detect changes in pressure. Both these functionalities can be combined within the same multilayer printed film to form hybrid sensors. Such se
